A good student-supervisor relationship is absolutely critical to a positive and rewarding research experience. Good supervisors can provide the mentoring, inspiration and mental stimulation you need to keep you going.

From the MGA advocacy casework statistics, we know that poor supervision is the number one complaint by research postgrads. This scenario is not only unproductive, but can be extremely stressful.

We have put together these practical tips about working with your supervisor.

Because – like a marriage – it goes two ways and everyone has to work on it.

If you need further advice, contact an MGA advocate so we can help you negotiate your way to better supervision. This service is free, confidential and independent from the University.
